Triple bottom line approach to sustainability


Messiah College approaches sustainability from a triple-bottom line approach, meaning our commitments and aspirations are viewed in light of their potential ecological, economical, and societal impacts.


Formally, our official vision statement for sustainability is, “To foster a sense of place at home while standing in solidarity with the international community as we create an interdisciplinary network that learns from natural processes to inform our thinking and practices on campus in order to create a more ecologically viable, economically strong and socially just institution.”


Informally, we are committed to simply doing our best as individuals and as an institution to respect and care for creation.
